School district employees feel much like those students would. We work hard, putting in many extra hours on evenings, weekends and holidays to provide the best possible learning environment for all children. We attend classes and workshops -- usually on our own time and at our own expense -- to stay current with the latest research and trends in education. We realize these sacrifices "come with the territory," but we would like to receive adequate recognition and compensation for the work we do.
